Skin Type

Skin types do change over time, so it's important to regularly perform a self-assessment or consult with our dermatologist when determining skin type and a skin care regimen. Skin types vary depending on several factors including water content, oil content, sensitivity, and age.

Why is skin type important?

The method and frequency with which you cleanse and moisturize your skin as well as the products you choose to treat your skin should depend on skin type. When deciding on skin care products, it's important to consult with an expert or research products and ingredients to find the products that work best for your specific skin type and skin conditions.
